The Takeaway

Mortgage Rates

The Feds recent comments suggest Fed rate reductions may have to wait until late 2024 or even 2025. A quick “internet” review of mortgage rates in Arizona shows a 30-year fixed rate “around” 6.656%. 15-year fixed rate at 6.328% and a 7/6 ARM at 7.673%.

Of course, credit scores and regional incentives will affect these rates.


May 2024 sales of 1,352 were DOWN 9.3% from the prior year. But the Average price of homes sold in May was UP 3.0% from May 2023. The sales price to list price ratio was at 98.63%. Under 100% but suggesting demand remains strong in the Tucson, AZ market.

It appears current interest rates may be slowing sales, but buyers are paying close to list for a Tucson home.

> Inventory Of Homes for Sale

New listings came in at 1,981 in May. An increase of 365 over the prior year. That’s an increase of 22.6% by the way. On the other hand, new listings were Up 10.3% from April 2024.

> Prices

Prices continue to increase year over year as shown by the median sales price was up 5.6% year over year. OH, and the average price increase of 14.1%.

> The Bottom Line

Mortgage rates are fluctuating 6.75% to 7.25% range for conventional loans. However, some new home builders are offering incentives to buyers to offset the rates.

No change in the near-term outlook! Continued demand, prices up and home inventory improving somewhat, but stuck at historical low levers. But prices in 55+ communities continue to move up indicating demand continues to be very strong.

It’s deja vu all over again on new construction. New home builders are steadily raising prices in response to demand with low resale inventory.  Most buyers are happy to get a new home and not need to remodel anything. New home builder incentives may also play a part in the new construction option.
